Love this abstract animation by Sam Bell. Watch it over on Booooooom TV.
Some jaw-dropping cinematography in this, watch it on Booooooom TV.
“Manoman” is a short film by London-based director Simon Cartwright which brilliantly mixes rod marionette puppets and animation. It’s dark, and kinda gross, but also kinda profound. I could feel it burrowing deep into my mind as I watched it. One of my favs so far this year. You can watch the full film over on Booooooom TV.
“Andante” by MIT’s Tangible Media Group is an exploration in musical motion, intended to visualize the bodily experience and natural rhythms of music. While this project is no doubt highly sophisticated, there’s something super charming about simply watching these little animated characters play the piano as they walk! Check out the full video over at Booooooom TV!
Hollywood whitewashing has been in the news a lot lately. One catalyst being the announcement earlier this year that Scarlett Johansson landed a lead role in the remake of Ghost in the Shell, and many wondering why it couldn’t have gone to someone of Asian descent. Korean rapper Dumbfoundead (Jonathan Park) offers up a humorous response, adding himself into a montage of blockbuster films and popular television shows, playing everyone from John Snow to Danny Tanner.
Park told to NBC News that he “wanted to flip the script on the conversation everybody was having about the whitewashing of Hollywood and ‘yellow-wash’ some of the most iconic films starring white male leads.”
This is definitely one of my favourite music videos this year! Watch Dumbfoundead’s “Safe” on Booooooom TV.
